“I am not fighting for the company. I am fighting for my pride.”
“Okay, I will not talk nonsense with you. Bye bye.”
“Wait a minute.” That man suddenly got serious. “I want to play with him. I need you to leave a memento for him. I’ll be back in Port Capital in three days. I’ll handle the rest.”
“Okay. But please remember after this is done, my debt to you is considered paid. Don’t ever ask me to do something so tasteless ever again.
“Haha, of course.”
“Hanging up. You may continue.”
Ye Yan hung up the phone quickly and threw it on the table as if it was something dirty. “Sanitize it.”
Caprice was one of the most opulent French restaurants in Port Capital and Xiao Qi chose a table near a window. He had ordered and decanted a bottle of 1982 Chateau Lafite Rothschild while anxiously waiting for Ye Yan.
It was 1:30pm, and way past lunch time when Ye Yan arrived. A tall and slender figure walked into the restaurant.
Xiao Qi went over to welcome him earnestly. He reached out his hand and greeted him respectfully. “How nice to meet you, President Ye. I am the General Manager of Xiao Corporation, Xiao Qi.”
Ye Yan ignored the hand that he reached out, and walked straight to the table.
Xiao Qi couldn’t bother to be embarrassed, as he quickly pulled out a chair for him.
Ye Yan sat down and said coldly, “I only have three minutes. Be direct.”
Xiao Qi dazed for a moment, before he rapidly sat down and said fawningly, “President Ye is indeed a straightforward person!”
He immediately placed the collaboration proposal in front of Ye Yan respectfully, “This is the proposal I have prepared. I hope President Ye could spare some time from your schedule to have a look at it. Although our company’s profit is not good now, it is still…”
“One minute!” Ye Yan interrupted him coldly. He glanced at him casually. He had a nice appearance, no wonder that woman liked him. However, he had a rotten interior beneath a fine exterior. A man who used women for personal gain was the worst.
“Errr…” Xiao Qi was a little embarrassed. He quickly cut through the chase and said with care, “President Ye, I hope that you could inject funds into Xiao Corporation.”
Ye Yan smiled coldly, “Why do you think I would agree?”
Xiao Qi opened and closed his mouth. He had wanted to say some business pleasantries initially like “you could name any terms as long as you were willing to inject funds”. However, he changed his mind as he thought that Ye Yan wouldn’t care about these teeny, tiny profits.
Ye Yan glanced at his watch and asked nonchalantly, “Lan Qianyu is your fiancee?”
Xiao Qi felt excited and quickly said, “Yes, yes. She had come to seduce me on that night I gave the room up to you. I didn’t expect…”
“She shielded me from a bullet.” Ye Yan stood up. “Let her come and find me personally if you want me to inject funds. Maybe I will consider.”
He left quickly after speaking.
Xiao Qi only regained his wits after dazing for a moment. He shouted at his back, “Then, I’ll contact you again, President Ye!”
Ye Yan didn’t answer and left the restaurant straight away.
Xiao Qi left the restaurant and immediately rushed to the hospital to look for Lan Qianyu. He was thinking, “Although Ye Yan was insufferably arrogant, he was also a man who would repay his debts. Otherwise, he wouldn’t have brought up the shielding incident and told Lan Qianyu to look for him. Maybe he felt that the debt was owed to Lan Qianyu and not me; thus he didn’t want to talk to me.”
Xiao Qi rushed to the hospital in a hurry. He was taken aback when he saw the empty ward. He quickly got hold of a nurse and asked, “Miss Nurse, where is the patient, Lan Qianyu?”
“Miss Lan had already completed the discharge procedures this morning,” the nurse said.
